lyrics

When you find a wash of love
That you just fall short of
You'll weep like a wash willow
Hallowed in the middle
You take the oxygen away from me
And release it when you please

Skull spinning like a goldfish bowl
As an ill wind blows eddies through my home
I'm always looking for the happy ending
Maybe no end to the searching
Lost bounties, lost qualities
Lost, just lost

This day is not my friend
And I am not my friend
Somewhere to run
Somewhere to run
Somewhere to run

Every day there's a triple darkness
And never a moment's peace
We're all crossing over to the other side
Of Al-Qiiyama city streets
Total proximity but no intimacy

To laugh is to ignore
Wrath and laughter have no power
While they are warming up the same old horrors
Your words are just echoes of echoes
The powers that be
A rouges gallery

This day is not our friend
And we're all at wits' end
Somewhere to run
Somewhere to run
Somewhere to run

You feel the cold and take the blows
But you'll find no comfort here
It's disillusionment every day
Preserve your soul how any which way
And proceed with the desert's creed
To make real
To make real
To make real what you only believe

This day is not your friend
Heaven help us friend
Somewhere to run
Somewhere to run
Somewhere to run
